SALEM, Va. – Missile Baits is making the Mini D Chunk and Ike’s Mini Swim Jig to complement the popular Ike’s Mini Flip Jig. After innovating the finesse flipping jig category, the Ike’s Mini Swim Jig is going to innovate the finesse swim jig category as well. With two jigs in the compact category, Missile Baits made the perfect trailer to put on both jigs. The Mini D Chunk features a wider chunk body to help skip cast the jig and hard kicking flappers to create action that bass destroy.
John Crews, B.A.S.S. pro angler and Missile Baits owner, said, “The Mini D Chunk is a bait that I have wanted for a while, and it came out great! The Ike’s Mini Swim Jig is another bait that Mike Iaconelli and I could not get in our hands on quick enough once we came up with the ideal. The combination of the two baits is amazing.”
The Mini D Chunk is 3 inches long and features a wider chunk style body. The flappers on the back of the body have a hard kicking action. The Mini D Chunk can either be threaded or hung on a jig to create the profile the bass desire. Any compact style jig now has the perfect trailer. The Mini D Chunk will be packaged five baits in a protective clam that will go into a standard Missile Baits bag. It will come in 10 colors that cover dark, natural, and shad tones including Bruiser Flash, Black Neon, Lava Craw, Bamer Craw, and Pearl White. A suggested retail price of $3.99 keeps the Mini D Chunk affordable for all anglers. Shipments are scheduled to go out in late July.
Ike’s Mini Swim Jig is the perfect complement to the Mini Flip Jig for savvy bass anglers that want a compact swim jig to get more bites under a wider range of conditions. Based around a 3/0 VMC jig hook with a vertical line tie, the Mini Swim Jig is designed to be fished on 14-to-18-pound test line but can take 30-pound braid as well. A key feature on the jig is the 3D, holographic, color matching, eyes on the fish shaped head. The Mini Swim Jig will come in three sizes (3/16, 5/16, and 7/16 ounce) and 10 colors to give anglers the right combination for any condition. The suggested retail price is $5.49 and delivery is expected in October.
To continue more Mini from Missile, Missile Jigs is adding five new colors to all three sizes of the Mini Flip Jig. The new colors are Lava Craw, Black Neon, Brewgill, Brown Craw, and Ike’s Secret. The new colors in the Mini Flip Jig are expected around January of 2022.
